Objective

3D Texture Artist available for hire.

Summary

Recent graduate from the Academy of Art University (AAU), MFA in Animation and Visual Effects with an emphasis in 3D texturing/surface detail.   I have 10 years of creative experience in the feature film industry doing post-production, intermediate, and restoration work in both live action and 2D animation pipelines. I have worked on contemporary and classic titles released by major Hollywood studios e.g. Paramount, Warner Bros., Disney, and Twentieth Century-Fox. My last decade of professional growth, in skills and training were accrued during my tenure in post-production studios such as Eastman Kodak's Cinesite, Laser Pacific, Lowery Digital Images, and CIS Hollywood. I am very organized, detail orientated, reliable, and sensitive to the requirements of working in a production environment. Some of my key skills include, but are not limited to the following:
  • PhotoShop (photo imaging and painting)
  • Maya (modeling, texturing/shader development, lighting and rendering)
  • Headus Uvlayout (laying out UVs)
  • ZBrush, Mudbox & Modo (3D painting texture, bump, specular, opacity, normal & displacement maps)
